Healthy Low-Fat Pumpkin Muffins

This is a super L/F, healthy and quick version of Pumpkin Muffins. They are 2 points on the Weight Watchers system and they are great for kids who don't eat veggies, because there is an entire can of pumpkin in them! You can add in nuts or choc chips if desired, but keep in mind that that would change your WW points value. Enjoy

First you will need a box of Spice Cake Mix (any brand will do)

Then you need one small can of pure Pumpkin

Mix the Pumpkin and the cake mix together with one cup of water. (DO NOT add other ingredients listed on the cake box) the oil from the pumpkin takes the place of the oil you would use in the cake.

Next, you will spray your muffin tins with non-stick spray or use paper muffin cups. I use a 1/4 measuring cup anytime I make muffins or cupcakes for nice full size muffins. Then, bake according to directions on the box. Keep in mind that ovens vary in temp. I just stick a knife in mine, when it comes out clean, they are done! Super yummy and th kids will love them too!
